Kaya and Blank (TR/DE)


Born 1990, Adana / Türkiye & Bensheim / Germany
Lives and works Los Angeles, USA

Kaya & Blank is a US-based Turkish-German artist duo whose work explores the ways in which humans shape and inhabit the world. Their research heavy approach is deeply rooted in documentary practices. However, by pushing the boundaries of how reality can be depicted, they transcend the domain of representation and create completely independent, often hyperreal visual worlds. As a result, the boundaries between reality and fiction in their work become blurred. Their projects often focus on traces of economic infrastructures and how neoliberal politics determine the ways we live.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
